What To Do When You Don't Know What To Do

Here is what to do when you don't know what to do.
It happens to everyone.  That moment in life when you have choices but you don't know what to do.  They can be good choices or unpleasant choices.

No matter if they are good or bad it can be so hard sometimes to make a decision especially when you have learned the hard way in past choices that you might have made the wrong choice.

We are in a position like that right now.  This time it is a choice of unpleasant options (Don't you just hate when that is the case?).

We don't know which way is right.  We don't want to make matters even worse by choosing wrong and so we feel a bit tortured right now over it.

The world tries to force us to quickly choose but I will resist that.  The more the world pushes me to choose, the more I will resist.

I may not know what the right choice is but I do know what to do until we do know.

We will pray and spend some time talking to God about it.  We will listen until He gives us His answer to this question.  We will wait and not move any direction until He does answer.  It is kind of like being on a path in the dark and being lost.  The answer is not to keep wandering around in the dark.  The answer is to stay put until you can see the right direction or until you are found.

So, I am sitting down in the middle of the path until He finds me and takes my hand and leads me in the right direction.  I am sure He will because you see, I have been in similar situations of uncertainty before and I have learned that He is faithful.  I have also learned that no matter what He tells me it will be the right thing and His peace and power will go with me no matter how scary the choice may be.
